I'm a classically trained pianist, but due to various living accommodations I've been unable to have a proper piano at home for well over 10 years. Lately, I've been playing keyboards quite often, and decided to buy a stage piano, so that I can finally get my chops back.
First off - the keyboard feels great. Yes it isn't quite exactly the same as an upright, or a grand at that, but no stage piano I've tried ever had the exact same feel of a real one. That said, it feels fantastic. Coming off playing midi controllers and synths at home, it is a breath of fresh air! It feels close enough that after a couple of hours of playing I'm not really noticing anything different from the upright at the studio - the keys are moderately heavy, the springback is good, not to sudden but not sloppy as well, so fast passages and trills feel very natural. Again, while it doesn't feel exactly like a real piano, I'd say that the difference present is definitely acceptable, even negligible.
Now, built in sounds - the pianos are sort of fine, the first grand seems too muffled for my taste, but the second one is much better, defined, bright, has some kick to it in the lows, moderately chimey highs. It sounds a little weird when, say, a chord is sustained for a VERY long time, but that's minor, and a nitpick of sorts. The electric pianos are not to my taste, but that's just me. I like some of the organs, and my favorite apart from the grand is the vibraphone, which sounds great.
There's also some built in styles, drum tracks, etc, which I don't use, but it's there if You need it. Also has a built in metronome, which is quite handy. Level of reverb and chorus can be adjusted separately, as well as be turned off completely, independent from each other. There are adjustments to the sensitivity of the keys as well, works fine.
Now, the midi stuff - I've only used it via usb, and it's pretty much plug and play, everything I've used it with recognizes it immediately, latency is quite okay, no hassle with setups at all, it's great. This means that You can make it sound like virtually anything You want, plus, most daws (or something like Sibelius) will allow mapping straight to notation, which is super handy. As I've bought it with the idea of composing in mind, this is a huge thing.
Overall, I am overly happy with this purchase, it feels great, sounds fine, the speakers are loud enough for home use, but it does tend to sound fuller through an external source, which is easy to hook up. Can't really say much more, 10/10, thanks to Thomann for such a great product, very happy with it.
Pros: Very good sound and build quality, many modes and options to choose from,
Cons: Digital piano is big and bulky so it could take quite a bit of space.
Bought the digital piano as a present for my birthday so I can play with friends. From time to time we have sopme gigs so I could use this. I didn't have a big budget so I started looking and synths because it was the most obvious choice.But after some considiration I settled at what was the cheapest digital piano I could buy because it had all the 88-keys I wanted and it had a lot ofmodes, options and other music intrument sounds which are very fun to use.
To be honest I didn't really expect much from it because it was the cheapest one. When the digital piano came (acctually shipped very, very fast comparing to other sites) I was really happy because it was my birthday present after all. I hooked it up and started playing. I was astonished by the experience. I have played real pianos before. It felt like an actual piano. The sound is exactly like a real piano, keys are weighted so it feels like a piano, but the best of all - you don't have to tune the digital piano unlike a real piano. Also, another thing I enjoy is that, if you want a louder sound, than you need to press the keys harder, like on an actual piano. And the sustain pedal is quite nice too. Fells like a real piano sustain pedal. Not like those cheap plastic ones. I have also played a lot of synths and digital pianos, nad the bass notes on them sound terrible, but on this one, sounds good and fells like playing a piano. The digital piano itself isn't really heavy so I can put it in the car and get it to the place where I want it - like my friends house. But it is a large in size so it might not fit in other people's cars. And dont forget that this piano has ability to be used as a MIDI controller so it can be used to record (through an audio interface) what you are playing also with MIDI it can be used to play with different effects on different software. Thomann has made a digital piano very easy to use and very fun to play with, for example, it has voices like 2 grand piano voices, acorderon, church organ, guitar, bass and many more which I find very fun to use. I would recomend this digital piano to people who want to start playing the piano, but have a tight budget. But, in my opinion, also professional players would enjoy this because it has a lot of awesome modes like - transpose, pitch bend, duet, a music library, you can record etc. Litterally everything even a preofessionalpianist needs.
This is the first digital piano I owe and I have been using it mostly for practising and for classical music. The feeling is not at all bad, with a nice key weight and response after you get used to it. One thing that could be improved is the loudness: even at the maximum volume (with Sony MDR-7506 headphones) the sound is not so loud, never really reaching a 'full volume feeling'. Also, the two grand piano options are very different and rather extreme, one being very very soft and rounded, and the other having that slightly rough metallic element to it. It would be nice to have more classical piano options, and maybe give up some of the other strange sound options that I personally might never use. For the price is a good practice piano and I am overall happy with it.
I picked up this piano as a learner piece of kit, having always played guitars. It was important to me to get a full 88 weighted keys! And this piano delivers. Comfortable to play, great reaction on the keys, really high quality sounds and functionality. Honestly feel like I was stealing at the price too! My criteria when reviewing is based around expectation of the instrument, and this delivered massively. I missed the fact there was a sustain pedal that came with it, so that was a nice surprise. The Speakers are not going to give you concert level sound, but you should not be expecting it with this piano. Cannot recommend this enough!
